A more unwelcome pest, the coffee boring insect Broca. Here we find them in old coffee still on the tree, which is why a good practice is for farmers to simply strip-pick the trees after the last salable harvest is done, and to clean up all cherries off the ground. In most regions with reasonable altitude, this is enough to keep the Broca population in check.
